Hunter Douglas Powerview®


Hunter Douglas has an incredible motorization system called PowerView.
The PowerView operating system has a few different control options.

PowerView Pebble Remote
Control®


The Pebble Remote is a handheld device that can operate up to 6 shades. You can operate them all at once or one at a time. The remote is available in a variety of colors as well as two face colors to choose from, black or white.

PowerView Pebble Scene Controller®


The Pebble Scene Controller is very similar to the Pebble Remote, but features a display screen that allows you to preview and select the shades in your rooms. You can operate a combination of shades all at once. Available in the same remote control colors as the Pebble Remote.

PowerView Surface Remote®


The Surface Remote is mounted to the wall for easy access. If you're concerned about losing your remote, this option is perfect for you. Available in 3 stylish colors.
 

Powerview® App


The PowerView app allows you to operate your shades on your smart phone or tablet. You can set schedules that will operate the shades throughout the day without you even touching it. If you want your shades to raise up at sunrise, link your scenes to local sunrise times, and every morning, your shades you've set will raise! It's like magic! Available on Apple and Android devices.

RemoteConnect™


The RemoteConnect™ allows you to operate your shades from your device anywhere in the world through an internet connection.
